Welcome to the 43rd Annual Croaker Festival hosted by the beautiful, river side town of Oriental, North Carolina. It seems like just yesterday since we’ve all been together, but the Croaker Crew is already very busy in preparation of the 2023 Croaker Festival activities!
It won’t be long and it will be time to watch the Croaker Pageants, listen to music, laugh, and catch candy at the parade, enjoy the festival food while strolling around the park with the amazing Crafts or heading down the Kids Park.
On Monday, the 3rd, the latest addition to the Festival will tee off at the Minnessott Golf Club. You are invited to participate in the Croaker Golf Tournament.
At the end of the day on Saturday the 1st, the Fireworks Show will go off from the bridge, as so many have before. Just after sunset, (around 9:00ish) the show will start and you can see it from below the bridge, a boat, or anywhere on shore where the bridge is visible.
We can’t wait to see you! We are excited that you are coming. And we welcome you to the Pamlico County Croaker Festival. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
